"you have to consider the lyrical content of the first two versus of this song:
The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground
But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace
You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you
overall he is describing those moments in your life where things just aren't going right.
so... I pose the question: should his voice be upbeat and exciting when the words he is saying really are muddy?
It's like double imagery.
now: at the end of the song, lyrics are encouraging... "after the flood, all the colors came out," he's saying that it's only after you've been made stronger through the trials in your life that you get a beautiful reward... or a beautiful day.
think about it this way: there is no pleasure without pain.
he's just acknowledging both and glorifying the pleasure."
